  • 1/2 Lb. Medium Shrimp, peeled and deveined – tail removed
  • 2 Tsp. Olive oil
  • 1/4 Tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/8 Tsp. Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 Tsp. Dried Oregano
  • 1/4 Red Onion, thinly cut
  • 1/4 Cup Red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup Cherry Tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 Cup Shredded Iceberg lettuce and Baby Spinach leaves, mixed
  • 8 Kalamata Olives, cut in half
  • 1/4 Cup Low Fat Feta Cheese, crumbled
  • 4-6 Tbsp. Tzatziki Sauce (fat free)
  • 2 Whole wheat, low carb pitas


  • Place the shrimp in a bowl and add the olive oil, salt, pepper, oregano and lemon juice. Toss to coat and let marinate at room temperature 20 – 30 minutes.
  • Take your thinly sliced red onion and place in a bowl. Cover with the red wine vinegar and let marinate for 20 – 30 minutes.
  • Prep your vegetables: Cut your tomatoes in half. Chop your iceberg lettuce. Cut the olives in half.
  • Heat a grill pan or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and grill or saute for 2-3 minutes on each side until pink and cooked through.
  • While the shrimp cook, wrap the pita in a clean dish towel and put in the microwave for 10 seconds to warm through.
  • To assemble, place the pitas on two plates. Top each with 2-3 tablespoons of the homemade, fat-free Tzatziki sauce. Add the spinach and lettuce combo. Top with tomatoes, olives and feta. Split the shrimp between the two plates. Top with the quick pickled red onions.
  • Serve with extra Tzatziki on the side.
